Jeff Bezos Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $27.2 – $35.3 Billion

Jeff Bezos is one of the richest men on earth, in fact, out of all the current billionaires out there he’s probably one of my top 5 favorites, along with other technology tycoons such as Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Mark Zuckerberg. As you probably already know Jeff is the founder, CEO and current Chairman of Amazon.com, which is the largest online retailer on the planet, and the reason why I admire him so much is simple, he’s a self-made billionaire who became extremely wealthy in the tech industry. I’m currently involved with the tech and web industry as well, so you could say that I have much more than just simple admiration for this guy, he’s actually one of my idols, and I’ll work as hard as I can every single day to become as successful as he is today.

But how did Jeff Bezos become so rich? Well, he worked on Wall Street for a while in the computer science field, but that didn’t last much, then in 1994 he came up with an idea that would not only change his life forever, but also the world as we know it, “Amazon.com”. Creating Amazon was a breaking point in his life and in human history as well, some people consider him the father of e-commerce, and thanks to that simple invention that we’ve all used before he’s been able to amass one of the biggest fortunes that the world has ever seen.

Amazon.com is pure genius, I mean Jeff Bezos came up with a unique idea and a business plan in a time where no one was even thinking about the internet yet. After coming up with his billion dollar master-plan Jeff started Amazon.com with a $300,000 loan that he borrowed from his parents, then he set up the company in his own garage, which initially was supposed to be an online bookstore only, and within two months sales went all the way up to $20,000 a week, and by the end of 2008 the company had already reach $4 billion in revenue!

But, how much is Jeff Bezos really worth? Well, according to Bloomberg Jeff has an estimated net worth of $35.3 Billion as of 2014, and Forbes ranks him No. 12 on their popular 400 list, which is the list of the richest billionaires on earth, according to Forbes obviously, with an estimated net worth of $27.2 Billion as of 2015.
